Furthermore, evolution theory says: Be better than your neighbor; but the law of Christ says: Love your neighbor as yourself. When one adds all this together, you have enough evidence to know that God is absolutely evident.

What? Maybe thats what a lot of you fundies say, i.e. thinking they're better than gays, immigrents, atheists, woman, exc.

And the last sentince is just nonsence.

#1: The theory of evolution is a scientific theory. It is not meant to be applied to every social situation.

#2: Even if you did go by the ToE, the best way to do things would be to cooperate with your neighbor. It's the easiest way to a happy and healthy life living adjacent to one another.

When one adds all of WHAT together? There isn't anything in this post that can be taken as any evidence of anything, it's just behavioral advice, not evidence.

What? Do you mean 'The Theory of Evolution', because it doesn't!

You mentioned some evidence. Would you like to share it?

5/17/2006 2:23:49 AM


well, you can't flaw that logic

5/17/2006 2:26:07 AM


The only people I see that claim to be better than their neighbours are xian fundies. When you add up all your evidence you come up with JACKSHIT.

You stupid jerk. Your name just had to be Origen, didn't it? FYI, even though Origen was a major church father, he was quite sensible compared to those maniacs who started the Orthodox/Catholic Church, and is Socrates compared to you.

Evolution is not a theory of ethics.

And the fact that Jesus recited the golden rule (which was known in other cultures before his time, btw) does not prove the existence of God.

When I added it together I got \"Be better than your neighbor, but, love your neighbor as yourself.\" No evidence of God was found.

mad dog -- Don't defend Origen (the real Origen) too much, after all, he was the wacko church father who took Jesus' advice and castrated himself for God.

Go learn to add.

Well, Papabear, he certainly had a lot of courage to do what he did. To summon it up, he must have had some balls.

Love your neightbour, unless he is not as moral as you, in which case kill your neighbour in the name of your god.

Actually evolution says if you are better than your neighbour than you have a greater chance of passing on your genes.

5/17/2006 3:26:14 AM


Yeah, but the emphasis is on the word \"had.\"

That's what I said. Seems like my pun slipped under your radar.

Dear Origen,
If the law of Christ says to love your neighbour as yourself, why do you fundamentalists spend so much time hating people? Is it because you hate yourselves? Get back to me when you have a moment.

5/17/2006 8:43:42 AM


Yes, and special theory of relativity states that anorexia sufferers shouldn't use transportation, while the general one says you shouldn't spend too much time near fat people. BCS theory shows how marriage is important. And, most of all, inversion theory shows us that we should all bow our heads and worship Yahweh, unless we want to end up in hell which is 10km under Siberia.

\"Furthermore, evolution theory says: Be better than your neighbor; but the law of Christ says: Love your neighbor as yourself. When one adds all this together, you have enough evidence to know that God is absolutely evident.\"

No you really don't...

5/17/2006 12:50:03 PM


Yeah well, my dog Skip crapped in my neighbour's yard last night, therefore this is more than enough evidence to show that God does not exist...Checkmate!

(I'm learning how to play by their warped sense of logic)

If a tree falls in the forest making no sound (as far as anyone knows about), and jazz often uses brass instruments, this post deserves a Non Sequitur Award.

Social Darwinism =/= theory of evolution.

5/17/2006 2:51:02 PM


Assuming evolution and the \"law of Christ\" actually say what _Origen's claiming, his conclusion still isn't at all evident.

5/17/2006 6:22:24 PM


\"Furthermore, evolution theory says: Be better than your neighbor;\"

No it doesn't. But, you know what? I do always try to be the best person I can. Do you think that's a bad thing?

\"but the law of Christ says: Love your neighbor as yourself.\"

Yeah, him and 10,000+ people before him. Hint: Jesus didn't come up with the golden rule.

\"When one adds all this together,\"

You get a pretty decent idea: Be better than your neighbor, but love them as yourself.

\"you have enough evidence to know that God is absolutely evident.\"

No. Where the hell do you get that retarded idea?

5/17/2006 9:05:10 PM


Origen - a chip off the old bollocks!
